Rhiannon is a wounded soul, a woman who feels herself alone and
unwanted and yet her heart is all goodness. Her love for Violet and
indeed for Camden fills her with an inner strength, rather allowing it
to surface even in the most dangerous moments. She will do everything
within her power to protect Violet and teach her how to stand up and
protect herself. Camden is a warrior, a man ruled by intense emotion
and yet when everyone else in his castle resents Rhiannon, Camden's
fairness and integrity shine forth. Gerri Russell creates a stunning
portrait of her villains that fills this romance with exciting,
suspenseful drama as the archbishop and his mother scheme and plot. In
an unexpected way, even their story moved this reader. I found myself
craving justice for all their misdeeds and yet, Gerri Russell created
in them a multi-dimensional portrait from which I easily understood
their motivations. Gerri Russell has a gift for peering into the hearts
of all her characters and placing them within adventures that keep
readers locked into captivating drama.
